Biography

DAN JUMBO IS A ENERGETIC EINDHOVEN, NL, BASED GARAGE DUO. LUDO SCHLECHTRIEM ON DRUMS AND STEIN VAN DEN AKKER ON BASS.
IN A WORLD FULL OF POP-PUNK MAINSTREAM BANDS, AND TOO MUCH GUITAR AND DRUM BANDS,
THESE GUYS TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENT WITH THERE MUSIC SINCE NOVEMBER '09.

WITH LOTS OF MUSIC STYLE INFLUENCES, ITS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT THEM IN A BOX.
INSPIRED BY THE SIMPLICITY OF THE RAMONES, AND COMBINED WITH RIFFS LIKE DEATH FROM ABOVE,
THEY TRY TO CREATE A WHOLE NEW SOUND OUT OF TWO SIMPLE INSTRUMENTS.

SEEING THEMSELVES AS THE COUNTERPART OF BANDS LIKE THE WHITE STRIPES, THE TING TINGS AND THE KILLS,
THEY HAVE THE SAME THING IN MIND: SIMPLICITY BEATS EVERYTHING. WHY MAKE DIFFICULT MUSIC, IF ITS POSSIBLE TO MAKE SIMPLE MUSIC,
WHICH SOUNDS JUST AS GOOD, OR EVEN BETTER? THATS UP TO YOU GUYS!
WITH TWO DIFFERENT MUSICAL BACKGROUNDS, THEY TRY TO COMBINE THE BEST OF BOTH: ENERGETIC DRUMS,
AND BASSLINES WITH LOTS OF FUZZ ON IT.

AFTER PLAYING THEIR DEBUT GIG ONLY ONE MONTH AFTER THE BAND WAS FORMED, THEY ARE BUSY MAKING A NAME FOR THEMSELVES
IN THE CROWDED WORLD OF MUSIC!
THERE LIVE SHOWS BURST OF ENERGY. MUSIC ON WHICH ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO STAND STILL.

THESE TWO GUYS, BOTH 18 YEARS OF AGE, ALREADY GOT A STAGE EXPERIENCE OF A COUPLE OF YEARS EACH.
PLAYED IN DIFFERENT BANDS BEFORE, THEY THINK THEY MAY HAVE FOUND THERE MATCH IN EACH OTHER.

THEY GOT THERE FIRST SHOWS DONE, MORE SHOWS PLANNED, AND A 27-DAY EUROPE TOUR AHEAD OF THEM!
ITS GOING TO BE A BUSY TIME FOR THEM!
